LONDON, November 19 /PRNewswire/ --

- Frost & Sullivan to Host Analyst Briefing on Electronics Manufacturing Market in Slovakia on Wednesday, 26 November 2008 at 15.00 GMT.

Frost & Sullivan will host a free telephone and web briefing on Wednesday, 26 November 2008 at 15.00 GMT to provide industry participants with an overview of the Electronics Manufacturing Market in Slovakia.


Slovakia has witnessed marked growth in electronics manufacturing, especially after the EU accession in 2004. The country is among the first few Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries planning to adopt the Euro in 2009. The global economic slowdown has been curtailing new investments in Slovakia in the second half of 2008 and is expected to do so in 2009. Therefore, Surface Mount Technology (SMT) equipment suppliers, electronic component manufacturers, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Electronic Manufacturing Service (EMS) companies and distributors are waiting for a moment when Slovakia embraces the Euro in 2009 as this is expected to bring more stability to the Slovakian economy.

This briefing will give an insight into what market trends are expected to emerge in the coming years and how it will affect the different segments of the electronics manufacturing supply chain. Highlights of the briefing include macroeconomic analysis, separate market segment analysis for OEM and EMS markets, revenue forecasts for the market segments, and also 360 degree view of the market from the supplier and the end user perspective.

This briefing will benefit SMT equipment suppliers, electronic component manufacturers, OEMs, EMS companies as well as Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) apart from distributors of SMT equipment and electronics components, by discussing emerging trends and the dynamics of the market.

"The global economic slowdown which has spread to emerging markets in CEE has had a sizeable impact on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) flowing into the country in the electronics manufacturing segment. Further, with Slovakia slated to adopt the Euro in 2009, manufacturers and suppliers alike are keeping their fingers crossed as to what impact this transition will have on the Slovakian electronics manufacturing market," observes Harish Natesan, Research Analyst for Frost & Sullivan's Electronics & Security group.
